Two Years Ago to Heaven

I am an new writer who enjoys expressing my thoughts through poetry, sharing travel experiences and more.

That late afternoon sunset in the window

Of your hospital room where I held your hand

And told you all those loving words

Thanking you for your love and support

Not knowing if you could hear me

But feeling the incredible strength of your love

A powerful moment of courage took over me

To say all those things that would help let you go

To a better place where all the pain would be gone

So up to that space it beckoned you, the light shone

On that winter night just before it all changed

The family gathered around and you were surrounded by love

We left you in peace to go deep into the night

Heaven gained a beautiful spirited angel

And to have let you go has been so painful

But knowing a Mother’s love is forever

Comforts our hearts and souls as we go on.

Heartfelt words. I can relate to this part right now... "powerful moment of courage took over me

To say all those things that would help let you go"

This is so hard but necessary to do. Heartbreaking but watching the suffering is worse.

Good write.

Such a beautiful and touching tribute Nella, written from the heart. I can relate to the last two lines and this is what keeps us strong as we go on. A wonderful tribute in a lovely poem.
